This commemorative brick is from Chittenden Hall at Michigan State University. A plaque on one side of the brick reads "Chittenden Hall Michigan State University Built 1900, Renovated 2014". This is a rare piece of MSC/MSU history.
Brief Chittenden Hall History:
Chittenden Hall was originally built in 1901 to be the primary building for dairy operations. The evidence for this can be seen with the large door at the back of the building which used to have a ramp allowing for cows to get inside. However, the purpose was quickly changed when a larger dairy building was opened in 1912. The building then became the home for Forestry, a name that is still engraved on the lintel across the main doorway. Forestry remained there until the late 1960’s, and then it moved to the Natural Resources Building. During this period, the building was also renamed from “Forestry” to “Chittenden Hall” after Alfred K. Chittenden, a former professor of forestry. From the 1960’s until the 1990’s it held a number of offices, and is currently the home of the MSU Graduate School.
